pulled a lot of his punches in his debate with governor romney, so if the original strategy was for biden to go in with a soft touch against paul ryan, we can be sure that that is going out the window. he is coming out swinging. gloves off. now, romney was able to dodge blows against his economic plan because actually there's not much of a plan there to jab at. take his strategy for economic recovery, to fill the revenue gap for a result from tax cuts is an exercise in shadow boxing futility. he hasn't yet told us what it is he's planning to do. but by hitching his wagon to paul ryan and endorsing ryan's budget plan, he attached himself to clearly articulated policy and a record that leaves the whole ticket exposed to attack which gives joe biden an opening to hit romney so hard -- to hit ryan so hard that mitt romney is going to feel it too. from the sound of it, the vice president seems to be getting his weight up. >> what i've been doing mostly is quite frankly, studying up on congressman ryan's positions. i just want to make sure that when i say these things that i don't have the cong

to an end. and between mitt romney's strong debate performance and a slight drop in the unemployment numbers, there have been some game changing twists this week and peter alexander has the latest from the campaign trail. >> after a week that re-energized republicans and reinvigorated the race, president obama is trying to blunt mitt romney's momentum, embracing the unemployment news. >> more americans are entering the work force, more americans are getting jobs. >> but romney hasn't ceded ground, last night attacking the president for what he calls failed policy that is stifle growth. >> the participation of our adults in the workforce were the same at the time he was elected, our unemployment rate would be 11%. >> $181 million funds raised by the obama in september. with romney collecting more than $12 million following the debate. >> both sides will have a tremendous amount of money down the final stretch of this campaign, particularly that obama $1 81 million, allowing them potentially to compete one-on-one with the republican money. >> romney facing lingering questions about recent asse

some significant differences. host: we heard a bit in the debate last week about where mitt romney stands on his tax plan. here is a headline coming to us. in the fog of numbers, there is little tax clarity from obama and romney. $5 trillion, whether or not tax cuts will equal $5 trillion. there is a difference in this number. guest: the $5 trillion is the gross cost of reducing rates 20% across the board. the. gov. romney made is it is unfair to call it a tax cut because he intends to offset the cost through base broadening. i think one thing that was interesting is although gov. romney has proposed 20%, he did not actually mentioned that number in the debate. i think what he did emphasize instead is he was not going to add to the deficit or increase taxes on the middle class. analyses has been done that shows it is a little bit difficult to keep those while cutting the rate by 20%. the decision not to mention the 20% number suggests that is where he will likely adjust his plan. he will stick with this plan of not raising taxes on the middle- class or adding to the deficit. host:
